    Did y'all see the shallow (near dry) pond on your right? If so, the trail going to spring tree was on your left just as you got to the far (south) side of the pond.

    Wish I could, but it just doesn't look to promising right now.

    I'll be camping at Briar Bottom (Black Mountain) with a group. Otherwise I'd join you for sure.

    Certainly! It's shaping up to be a trip with all the right ingredients. We'll have some cool gear, visit some interesting (and steep) places and likely encounter rapidly changing weather. We'll meet one new guy, Legs, who will hang with us for the first time.

    It's been 30 years since MedicineMan and I have been to the Chimneys! Both of us went as Boy Scouts.
    (...more than that for me, but we'll call it 30 years!)

    William Faulkner's scouts at the water tree, October 2007. The spring runs right from under the base of the tree.

    It's been a long time since I've been to the old water tree.

    WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.
